WILLIAM CROM ON THE
OTHER SIDE OF THE W ORLD
A friend of Mr. Wm. II. Crom, who
spent a number of his boyhood years
in this city, and who is now a lieu-
enant in the Philippine constabulary,
received the. following, which will be
of interest to all our readers:
Camp Andres, Sulu, Nov. 9, 1916.
Dear Friend: Just got your letter
of September 10th, and was very glad
to hear that you were still alive. It's
been over two years since I heard
fro many one in Ocala. David White,
of Citra, is stationed near here and
we get together once in a while and
compare letters. He hears from a
young lady about once in six months,
and that is all the Ocala news we get.
If you want to hear something
about this place, you won't be hard to
please for there is very little to tell.
Just at present I am the only white
man here. It consists of a long bar barracks
racks barracks built of bamboo, in which
sleeps my company of sixty Filipinos
and Moros, a guard house, and my
own quarters, also of bamboo with a
thatched roof. The whole thing is
surrounded by a ten-foot barbed wire
ence with a sentry by the gate. About
two hundred yards off are the little
shacks where the families of the men
ive. The whole thing is in the bend
ot a river, the Tubig Puti (White
river), where the people bathe and
wash their clothes. The country
around is rolling hill country, with
very few trees and much tall grass.
All this is in the center of the eastern
end of the island of Jolo in the Pro
vince of Sulu. It is one of the most
southern of the Philippine Islands,, in
fact, we are only a short distance
from Borneo and Celebes. I am deputy
governor and everything else here and
my main job is to keep the Joloano
Moros from going on the warpath and
raising cain. It is only just recently
that this district has been quieted
down and there are still a few out
laws out now. They get in rifles and
ammunition from Borneo and Singa
pore, old .Remingtons and Snyders,
and then get a band started and go to
looting the people. My business at
present is to hear about it before they
get a good start and clean them out.
I have had several nrettv eood fiehts
with different bands, and at present
there are only about a dozen outlaws
ii the district and only three or ,f our
guns. In addition to the rifles, these
hombres carry a long knife called a
barong that is sure some cutting
weapon. Three or four of the soldiers
have gotten cut at one time or an
other, and they can certainly make
some slashes in you. They also throw
big spears, but don't poison them,
thank goodness. I have a junior of officer,
ficer, officer, a man from Pennsylvania, who
is in the town of Jolo at present. He
is some company when he's here, for
this life is very lonely. Unless we go
to Jolo, we only see one white man a
month. He is the major, who inspects
the company monthly.
I spent most of August in Manila
on vacation leave, and had a greai
time. It is five days from here on a
steamer, but had pleasant company
both ways. While there I took the
examination for Uhe army, and think
. I will get it all right. So I may ge
into Mexico before very long, and see
what kind of fighters the greasers are

President Wilson's peace note to the
belligerents, Secretary Lansing's com

have held first' place in. the American

right and Lansing's comment on it

greatly detracted from both. When

to say who, in case the single term

done to put in Wilson's place as thef

son Wilson has done some things the Star
doesn't approve of, and hasn't done a
great many things the Star thinks
should have been done. Yet, when we
surveyed the field, we saw no other j J
man in the democratic party that we
thought stood any show of election, J

hope the last will be g6od enough to
let me be immune for the remaining
part of the winter I have now con concluded
cluded concluded to resume my recollections of
various scenes and incidents now long
gone by. I ended my last article
where Beauregard's forces had disas disastrously
trously disastrously defeated Butler's army and
driven it back pell-mell to Bermuda
Hundred and there, as General Grant
said, had bottled him up. It is my
purpose now to tell you how the cork

off battles and blood and stifling sul sulphurous

musketry and thunderous roar of red
artillery, and give you readers some something

the remaining portion of this number.
Now let's put the cork in the bot bottle

pleasant to read and more cheering to
think about. Of course, not hearing,
or of General Whiting, General Beau Beauregard

upon the heels of the fleeing federals
until they reached their base at Ber Bermuda
muda Bermuda Hundred, and then it became
necesary to establish a line of the
Confederates so as to keep Butler and
his army in the, bottle. Now, near
Ware Bottom Church there was "a
road that both ides wanted to hold
and control. General Hagood was
ordered to establish the Confederate
line and to bring this road inside of
our territory. He ordered out a
strong skirmish line from his brigade
and placed Captain Izlar, of the Edis Edis-to
to Edis-to Rifles in command of it. He or ordered

and if he found the enemy in possesion
of the road to drive him across to the
other side until he found a suitable lo location,

picket force and that his brigade
would keep in touch with him and send
him assistance if he found he needed

the enemy in possession of the road
and with a strong skirmish line on our
side of it.' The firing soon began and
grew hotter and hotter as we advanc advanced.

before them until they gained the
road and considerable territory beyond
it. The Federal commander however,
hearing the heavy firing going on out
on his advanced posts and finding out
what we were after, sent a large body
of re-enforcements to his men and be
fore we had chosen the best? place to
locate our line, made a strong and
vigorous counter attack on us" and
slowly forced us back across the road
and got possession of it. Captain Iz Izlar
lar Izlar had promptly notified General Ha

enemy and the general quickly sent a
considerable body of re-enforcements
to Captain Izlar. They did not reach
us however, until after the enemy had
crossed the road and had it again in
his possession. Captain Izlar how

re-enforcements arrived he readjusted
his line of skirmishers and immediate

body of our troops came up and es

The heaviest and severest firing
ever heard on a skirmish line during
the whole war, took place on this
same occasion of bottling up Butler.
There were of ( course, quite a number
of killed and wounded on both sides,
but the enemy's loss was considerably
more than our. So far as the Edisto
Rifles were concerned providence
seemed to favor us after our heavy
losses at Drewry's Bluff the day be before,

at Ware Bottom with only one man
wounded and he not severely. Cap

two minnie balls and his cap with

real harm was done although one bul

A remarkable incident of this skir

this: During the time that the firing

or some years prior to the com
mencement of the war a very large
and prosperous mercantile business
was being carried on in Orangeburg
by N. A. Bull & Co. The firm was
composed entirely of northern men,
and among their numerous employ employees
ees employees were four young men from way
up north-Connecticut. They were
George H. Curtiss, John C. Pike, Lee
W. Hitchcock and William A. Church.
When the call for troops was made
these fpur young men promptly
answered the call and enlisted in the
Edisto Rifles and as efficient, faithful
soldiers fought through the Entire
war and as good fortune favored
them, neither of them suffered any
mate rial injury. After the war was
over Hitchcock and Church went back
r.crth. George Curtiss went into bus
iness at Florence, S. C, I think, and
when I last heard of him he was a
prosperous and well thought of citi
zen. John C. Pike located in Orange
burg and went into the mercantile
business there married and died a few
years ago, respected, honored and lov
ed by all who knew him. About fif
teen or twenty years ago, Church paid
a visit to Orangeburg for the first
time after leaving it to enter the con
federate service. He stayed quite
awhile and while there' joined the
Camp of Confederate Veterans and
before he left he was awarded the
Confederate bronze cross, of which he
was exceedingly proud. He afterward
wrote back to the commander of the
camp at Orangeburg, that he was nev never
er never so proud in his life as when he
was walking ,the streets of his home
city with his cross conspiciously
displayed on the lapel of his coat. No
doubt as he said it attracted much
attention and kept him busy telling all
about it. But there was another
northern man who enlisted in the
Edisto Rifles'' at the yery beginning
of hostilities who calls up many more
memories and for much more talk
than the four I have already named.
This fifth man was Ira T. Shoe Shoemaker.
maker. Shoemaker. He was born and reared in
Herkimer county, N. Y., and 'was a
graduate of Yale. His health was not
very good, so some few, years before
the war he came south, hoping that
a warmer climate would build him up.
He stopped in Orangeburg county,
S. C, and commenced teaching school
in one of the academies which the ante-bellum
planters used to maintain
for the pre-college education of their
children. It so happened that he was
employed to teach in our neighbor neighborhood
hood neighborhood arid. I went to school to him for
two years and it was due to his
thorough and efficient work that I was
enabled to enter the .sophomore class
first year at the university. While
teaching the first two years after
coming south he boarded in the fami
ly of one of the wealthiest planters of
that section of the country. There
were three or four very nice and at attractive
tractive attractive daughters in the family and
naturally enough there was soon a
love .affair on between the pedagogue
and one of the girls. Of course there
was opposition by the family, but only
because the schoolmaster was a north northern
ern northern man and not rich. But this made
no difference to the two parties chief chiefly
ly chiefly concerned and the result was an
elopement and marriage. This sever severed
ed severed diplomatic relations between the
two families, but it did not seem to
faze the bride and groom a bit. They
moved into our section and Shoemak Shoemaker
er Shoemaker was thenV employed to teach the
school at the academy where I went
to him. His father-in-law and fam
ily completely ignored him and his
wife for a year or two, but he lived
to see the day when he was prouder
of Shoemaker and for mighty good
reasons too than he was of any other
son-in-law that he had and he had
four or five. When the war began
Shoemaker promptly enlisted and
made as, brave and efficient soldier
as ever wore the Confederate uni
form, and although in many severe
and hotly contested battles he came
through to the end without a scratch.
He was twice specially mentioned by
the commanding officer in his report
of the battles for conspicious brav bravery
ery bravery and heroic conduct on the battle
field and though only a private was
recommended for a commission. At
the fall of Fort Fisher, on the 17th of
January, 1865, he was captured and
was, with a number of others, taken
as a prisoner to the federal prison
at Elmira, N. Y. Shoemaker's home

The Beauty of It
The beautiful hing about Christmas,
When you figure the holiday out,
sn't so much in the spirit of love
That the magazines tell you about:
Nor is it in giving a fortune away,
Or splendor like mountains piled.
But the beauty that's really existing,
Is the joy of an innocent child.
Your tree may sparkle like diamonds,
Its glamor is nothing but lies.
When compared to the starry splendor
lhat gleams from a baby s eyes:
Ah! There is the beauty of Christmas,
Nothing can quite take its place,
Till it dawns upon babyhood's face.
